RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I have a question, how will you install whatever the outside skin will be with the windows already installed? BTW, I've been watching this thread from the beginning, very impressive.

RE: 7500 Onan

Thanks to all for your input. I may never do this but, it has crossed my mine and I see that some of the earlier Quiet D sets did have an access panel in the side. My set runs great and I won't mess with it. Thanks again. Busyguy The commercial units do have an access door on the side. I've never seen one in person, so I'm not sure how they are configured inside. Colorodo Standby Generator

RE: 7500 Onan

WOW, 30K hours. I thought I had a lot at 3500. Still on original fan belt. So my 7500 has picked up a slight oil leak. Coincidently with an oil change but it’s not at the filter, it’s above the filter. It’s weird, it leaks about a third of a quart over a few days then almost stops. It doesn’t appear to leak while running. Knowing what you know, what might you suspect? According to the parts breakdown there are a few items above the filter that could cause an oil leak. The injector pump is one area as well as a block off plate or two as well. You'll need to pull the covers to see what it is for certain.

RE: 7500 Onan

My 7500 is also not on a slide. I use a hydraulic table to pivot (remove the front mount bolts and 1 on each side in the rear) the unit down for anything other than oil or coolant flush. My unit has a little over 30K hours on it. We had the radiator rebuilt, changed water pump and belt. I'm on my 3rd water pump and belt. I change the thermostat as a matter of habit if I'm that far into it. Link for the table from Harbor Freight - hydraulic table We also changed the oil pressure sending unit last week. That turned out to be a fairly significant job. We had to pull the radiator, muffler and fiberglass firewall (for lack of a better term) to get to the switch since it's buried in the right rear portion of the block. Of course it was a mess, but we got it all cleaned up and going. The biggest thing would be not changing any of the characteristics of the cooling air flow. If you do, it will overheat and eventually cause damage. It's like changing the characteristics of a fan shroud. Normally it causes more issues than it's worth. Honestly, I think you'd be better off spending the $170 at Harbor Freight for the hydraulic table for as little as you'd need to remove the top.

RE: Time for New Floors, Anyone with Pics of New Wood Floors

Looks great, how do you deal with the carpet that runs under the walls? We intend to replace our carpet with flooring as well and wonder how to handle those areas.
